Join us in Moving Water along with the Buffalo Maritime Center as we learn about the Erie Canalway and the surrounding waterways which have crafted Buffalo and the Western New York region into the wonderful place that it is today! The Buffalo Maritime Center will be bringing their boat building trailer to help lead in the construction of a working canoe. Children participating will be guiding by experts and will use tools and equipment to work on the construction of a seaworthy boat!
Supported by the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor and the NYS Canal Corporation
